Are You Overdriving Your Headlights? June 11, 2010

When we move too fast, it gets harder to see where we currently are!

Hey guys…I am feeling so inspired to share so much with you today, that this is my second post today LOL. I have really been reflecting a lot lately and going through some intense personal growth, which is always challenging and awesome at the same time:) Something coming up for me a lot is whether or not I can really distinguish between the voice in my head and the voice in my gut. One is really loud and annoying and the other is a deep feeling in my tummy and body. My intuition is in my gut, and most of us know with our heads that we should trust our intuition, but do we really know how to? I cannot trust my intuition unless I know what my intuition is saying. What I am realizing however, is that my intuition is a body response and any other voice is in my head. My head is always telling me what I “should” or “shouldn’t” do. My intuition gives me an inner knowing, but then my head tries to undermine it. What has been very helpful for me anyway, is slowing down…a lot! I tend to get very judgmental of myself, questioning where I am, if it’s good enough, and I’m doing enough, am I moving ahead fast enough…etc. Does this ring a bell to anyone??? Ugggh, it can be so exhausting! However, when I am moving too fast, it’s like I overdrive my intuitive headlights and then I can’t see as well and run the risk of getting into an accident. For example, if we are on the highway at night, and the speed limit is  60 mph, but we are in a rush so we speed up to  80 mph bc we are afraid of being late, this will cause us to overdrive our headlights and we will not be able to navigate the road as well. Is getting their faster really worth a possible speeding ticket, accident, and adrenal burnout from stress? I use to think so, but not any more. Therefore,  my suggestion for those of you who want to live more in alignment with your inner, personal power is…slow down. Move at your natural speed. If you speed up too fast, your will overdrive your intuitive headlights, and you’ll lose the ability to see what’s in front of you. If you just go the speed limit, your headlights will keep the next guided action lit up for you to see, and you will always know what’s in front of you. Afterall…how can we possibly know where to go if we don’t know where we are???

I’d love to hear from you. Please share your stories with me! Here’s To Your Health, Wellness, and Vitality!
